Feeling... awful. My back hasn't hurt since after I went to the chiropractor last Friday but yesterday, it started bothering me and this morning, I woke up in excruciating pain. My walk to the Metro left me with stabbing pains up my back with every step. I'm going back to the chiro tonight but I might need to see a doctor if that doesn't help.

Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver. I started this last week and should finish it by tomorrow. Even though it's been almost two years since I read the prequel (The Bean Trees), it picked up easily enough.

Watching...  Last Man on Earth on Fox. I started watching this show with my family when I was in Texas and it's hilarious. I roped The Pilot into it this week and we've watched all 9 episodes in the last few days. It's so good!

Thinking about... doing a sugar detox...and by thinking about, I mean seriously researching. I've always had a sweet tooth but lately, it's been out of control. There's no reason for me to be craving sweets as many times a day as I am. I've been working on eliminating refined sugars from my diet this year and it's concerning to me that my sugar cravings have increased in spite of this.

Working on...
our apartment...story of my life.

Needing... a fix to this situation with my back. I've had back injuries before, but I've never had pain like this.

Loving... that The Pilot is home. I haven't posted about this but in January, he was offered a job as a Captain for a different airline. It's an exciting promotion but it meant that he had to head to training for 3 months. He was able to come home some weekends, but never for more than 36 hours. For the last stretch, he was gone for almost a month and it was really hard.

Excited about... my mom coming to visit this weekend!

What are you up to today?


  1. YAY, so glad the pilot is home!!!! Congrats on the promotion, woohoo!!!

    Hope your back gets better, that is no fun when it's so out of wak. Fingers crossed the chiro can help you out.

    We've talked about Whole30 before and I"ve suggested it to many blog friends after completing it and it was incredible in regards to sugar detox. I don't need sweets anymore, carrots and baby tomatoes are sweet enough for me. I know with you being a vegetarian it would be tough, but I bet if you kept the chick peas and black eyed peas but cut out everything else it would be helpful. Let me know what you think.

  2. I know it's been difficult with him being away, but you did a good job of distracting yourself and keeping busy in the meantime! And now there's lots more time for double-blates! ;)
    I really hope you get some relief at the chiropractor for your back and that it STAYS feeling better.
    The apartment....story of my life, too!
    Hope your day is good and the back pain subsides!!

  3. Yay for the pilot being back! And I was going to suggest the Whole 30 with modifications as well. It has super helped my sugar cravings and was a real eye opener to all of the places that it sneaks in!

  4. Oh noooo about your back :( That's not good at all!! I hope it's starting to feel better by now. You need to fix yourself!!

    Haha, I watched the next two episodes of that yesterday but I've been so busy today I haven't had a chance to watch--it really is a funny show and I can't wait to get all caught up!

    Have a blast with your mom!!

  5. Oh no, how are you feeling now? So glad your husband is back. I can't believe you were apart for so long!!! I can't sleep when my husband is gone. I'm spoiled!! :)
